The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for The Willows is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Willows in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.889 for The Willows is calculated as follows: ( (32 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.889

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Care Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    The 4.036 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Willows is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 5.6 positive Reviews (28 registered beds ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 5.6 Target = 0.536

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

I find the staff to be extremely supportive of the family, kind and sensitive to residents who have various needs. They always find the time to assist residents and sit and speak to them as required.
The care home is clean and comfortable and utilities provided are constantly being updated.

My father has been resident at The Willows care home for nearly three years during that time he has been looked after very well and he has flourished in this period. He is 97 years old and needs attention, and the staff always provide an excellent level of care and attention. His room is always clean and tidy and his clothes are laundered to a high level. Should there be any problems, I am advised immediately. The meals are very good and the dining area is always very clean and tidy. The outside gardens are kept very well and the residents are encouraged to spend time there. Activities are provided as well as occasional outside trips. It is a small care home with the emphasis on being a home not an institution. I know the staff do a very good job and I have every confidence in him being well cared for, he does get very good value for money.
